            Love, secluded, friendly staff, a bit expensive”

            We had a great stay for our 5th anniversary on Sumilon Island. For a day trip, I'm not convinced that it is worth the effort, but if you stay at least one night, you'll have enough time to do all the island activities and you will experience the island free from boatloads of day visitors. Book well in advance though. The dinner and breakfast buffets were excellent, and it is clear that they make a ton of money from the drinks. You are not allowed to bring any drinks/food onto the island (we had a special bottle of champagne (for our anniversary) that I dragged around for two weeks that we had to leave behind at the port). Expect to pay about 3 to 4 times the normal amount for any drinks (local beers, cocktails etc) on the island. Apart from that, everything was great. Pros: Great staff, big rooms, gorgeous infinity pool, good food, good massages Cons: Day visitors, expensive drinks

            Happy first time glamper”

            I had never been in a glamorous tent before and was a bit hesitant about the shared bathroom but we were lucky and had the whole camping site to ourselves. It was still a bit weird to get out of the tent and walk across the camping ground whenever we had to brush our teeth or go to the bathroom. But it is as worth it. The glamping area is actually the most secluded area of the resort which is on an exclusive part of the island. We saw the sunrise from our tent and had a very nice romantic dinner under the stars. The staff went above and beyond: very nice honeymoon setup in the tent and very attentive to our dietary requests. Simulon island is one of the places we chose to splurge on in the Philippines and despite (or maybe because of) the daytours on both sides of the island staying overnight makes a huge difference. Most importantly you have the sandbar to yourself after 5pm to take really nice sunset pics. Snorkeling was exceptional in the marine sanctuary and the baby shark feeding was a nice surprise. The view from the infinity pool was also a plus. All in all a really wonderful stay even if it’s a bit far from Cebu city and Moalboal Ps: don’t be put off by the number of people on the boat ride to the island. The tourists aren’t as invasive as you’d think, as long as you avoid the sandbar during peak hours.

            Customer service needs improvement, overrated, was expecting beautiful landscaped gardens”

            Room is big and clean. Most staff are friendly and very helpful except for one front desk girl staff. That day, we checked out 12nn and stayed till 5pm. Since we can still use the amenities, we swam in the pool. When we decided to take a shower near the dive shop, my toiletries was already packed in the luggage. So, I asked front desk for a set of hotel toiletries. Sadly, she didn't give us, site reasoning that they ran out of toiletries. I was so mad because how can they ran out of shampoo and soap that they provides in each hotel room? That's so very unhelpful. We booked 3 rooms for one night that costs us more than 40, 000 ++. And they cannot even give us a small bottle of shampoo and small piece of soap. The trees are not well cared for, some are dried, maybe because of lack of water. Gardens are not beautifully lanscaped. To sum it all, not worth the value for money.

            Amazing secluded resort experience, felt like I was in Maldives”

            Pros: Amazing private resort, great for couples and families Infinity pool is picture perfect 3 jacuzzis with seaview are bonus Spacious and clean rooms Crystal clear blue water all around Decent amount of resort activities (biking, trekking, lagoon, scuba diving, shark feeding, snorkeling, massage, etc) Amazing food at the restaurant Amazing staff, my friend was proposing on New Year’s Eve and all staff and the band went extra miles to help my friend to make it the best memory ever (check the video on their facebook!) Cons: Location is a bit far, about 3-4 hours from Cebu City plus 15mins boat ride (with fixed schedule) There are day tour people coming onto the island, so they will use some of the beach area and facilities, some trash were left on the sandbar and surrounding water Maybe better with one extra bar/lounge option instead of just one

            Pros - Spacious clean room - Stay included all activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boating, trail cycling, trail trekking. - All food and beverages in the mini bar was included in the stay - Staff were accommodating and helpful Cons - Almost missed the boat transfer to the island because we were not informed earlier that it might be affected due to weather. The front desk lady told us that notifications were sent out but we did not receive anything. Nonetheless, we managed to catch a transfer into the island. - Buffet dinner spread can be improved, some of the appetizers were a tad cold right from the start of the buffet

            We booked a room for the honeymoon night and absolutely felt great here. Sumilon has made me feel like Cebu more than ever. The service staff is very enthusiastic and hardworking. I experience a lot of services here such as feeding fish, kayaking, swimming, ... however, because of the weather, I cannot watch the coral and the staff promised to check the massage service package. But no employee responded. All services on the island are great and I hope to come back here soon. Thank you!

The room was very clean and spacious and it was a short walking distance from the restaurant which offered the most delicious buffet. The boat ride was short and hassle-free.

To our surprise the price included three meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner - per day, and the chef always prepared for lunch and dinner a three course menu. We hardly could eat all. It was a great adventure on the island beside swimming and snorkeling in the clear water.

            We enjoyed, unfortunately for only 3 days, the very nice resort and its amenities. We where two families with three children and booked the family villa. To our surprise the two villas, side by side with spacious rooms in individual houses, had their own little pool. Our kids had the greatest fun there. The island resort was not overcrowded and so we could enjoy the peace and quietness of the beached. We as well enjoyed the beaches with the crystal clear waters, great for snorcheling. The food served was sufficient and excellently presented. Especially with our children the staff was friendly, accommodating and helpful. We certainly will return again.

            We had a wonderfull room with a superb design with a view direct to the cristal clear water. Snorcheling is excellent and walking around the quite large island is easy on the well maintained paths. The restaurand is only middle class and is lacking in many details. Breakfast buffet was not very delightfull, coffee lousy, no butter available and a very few unripe fruits only. Drinks are overpriced, a beer PP 145 is too expensive in a restaurant of this class. Group travellers may disturb. A La Carte food is ok.

            it's an island, peaceful and exclusive

            Sumilon is known as one of the top destination in Cebu and the price says it all. However when we came there we were dismayed that it was not well kept most especially the rooms. Although its spacious, the room smelled like it was not occupied for months and the toilet bowls of the two rooms we stayed in were not functional. Its sad because the island spelled relaxation and beauty and the Management could have well maintained the rooms as it is considered as the most important area for the guests
